Millers swoop late for Towell

ROTHERHAM United have completed a season long loan deal for Brighton midfielder Richie Towell.

The Millers beat the transfer deadline to land the 26-year-old Irish attacking midfielder on a loan deal until the end of the current campaign.

Towell, who played in a 2-0 Brighton win against Rotherham in March 2017, lists Hibernian and Celtic among his former clubs and joins Manny Onariase in signing for the Millers on transfer deadline day.

He is manager Paul Warne's 11th summer signing.

Defender Dominic Ball departed on a season long loan to scottish cub Aberdeen on deadline day, while fellow defender Aimen Belaid had his contract terminated by mutual consent.
